Hope you realize that is another Chip. Not sure if it is an imitator or

Good points...

The USA has supported Our partners to the South consistently on issues of border
enforcement & crime. The problem has been the rampant "Corruption." Many people
see this an illegal substance problem and it is a small portion. The problem is
"Corruption" runs from top to bottom and in every aspect of the Mexican society.
This is where the problem lies and the control aspect of the whole country.

Do agree to a point where the inspections go both ways. We should be having
inspections going South too as a regular process too. Too bad the Republicans
who cut back spending on border improvements and personnel did recently. It is
a 2 way street and the effort should both ways with Mexico too.

Mexico has only been recently on board so your viva Mexico celebration has a long
way to go. Let's wait on the celebrations till border security and these people in
the business and most of all "Corruption," has been basically neutralized.

it going North.

I sore the presser they just had and it was beautiful. Calderon thanked us for our friendship and he vowed to work his buns off to insure that we are all prosperous and happy in N America. Some jackball then asked about the NFL labor dispute and the whole thing went downhill from there. Calderon seems pretty short but he was so gracious and thankful and reminded us all of the valuable contribution immigrants have made to our country.
Chip, wake up! wake up! Oh, and yes Santa Clause is real and Elvis is alive?

It could have been a cartel member who came to Arizona to join the Tea Party. Think about it.

I guess the following is your mantra:
Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
And if you're feeling cross and bitterish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you'll feel fine
I knew a girl so glooming
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face

Exactly! Life is too short to get caught up griping and complaining. My wife used to do that all the time and was a real pain int he buttass. But I told her to loosen up the bone and enjoy life a bit and she's a changed woman. I really don't give a good, sweet you know what about all these negative people who criticize this and that for no good reason. Life is beautiful here and I just found out that my wine club is sampling a new Zinfandel tomorrow night so I'm ecstatic.

I just officially do not like Mexico anymore.

Calderon is a double dealing backstabbing two timing crook.

It is a sad day that Obama gave in to GOP and Crooked Mexico.

Absolutely no money for Mexico and demand that until all illegals go back to Mexico (or Mexico pays for everything they've gotten for free) there is no trade.

Someone needs to make demands of drug running Mexico and their culture of santeria and la muerte.
Keep the vulture women out too who gold dig here to get ahead.

Send the GOP to Mexico because that is who is lobbying for Mexican billion dollar drug empire. Who do you thing comes over in the name of commerce to solicit US business sector??US Business is in bed with the enemy.

It was the GOP /corporate America and Crooked Mexico who pushed for exploiting cheap labor with the Bracero program, and for NAFTA where it could exploit slave labor in Mexico.

And Clinton, like Obama get pressured to give into their demands. This plan wasn't Clinton's or Obama's they just went along with what business lobby in US and Mexico.

The only ones who win on this is Mexico, drug trade, illegal immigrants who will exploit this till kingdom come as well as GOP lobby who facilitates undermining American's safety.

It wasn't enough GOP paved the way for Wall Street greed to derail the US economy for high risk greedy profits (instead of more oversight). It also wasn't enough to reward the greedy risk takers with Government (taxpayer's) money while claiming to be anti government. All the threats of GOP government shut down, GOP job slashing, GOP open borders while double talking about "border threats" , they now are opening the flood gates to disaster.

Paco, we need about 20 sets of your rose colored glasses for the people in here who just wait for the headline to be angry. They have been practicing their posts since the meeting was announced. What did we think would happen today? What would Newt have done differently if he was president....better yet how hypocritical would McCain have looked today had he been the chief.
You inspired me to find myself a nice glass of vino tinto. cheers!

You need to stop interfering in the ranting with such logic. You will ruin all their fun! Or as you are about to see, just move the cross hairs onto you. Just wanted you to know their is one other idiot here who agrees with you and split the ranting between us.

Calderon is a typical Mexican. NO SHAME.
Why doesn't he go talk to his own people about trust and respect. How about some manors while were at it.
